Discussion: Looking to play in O"Fallon tourney

You might want to include your age, level of play, positions, and where you reside. Would help you possibly get some feelers.

Good luck finding a team to play on.

Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

I went back in February for a little vacation. I enjoyed it. Too bad my back started to hurt from standing up so long and my bad knee hurt from sitting in a car for 20 hours on the drive down. If I go again, I'd like to work on my pitching and make different plans for the trip. Looking into buying a Class C motor home.

There were three women there that could really play!!!!

Discussion: Batting tee

Don't buy a tee made of plastic. Soft rubber will last for an eon. Llabtfos hit the nail on the head so to speak.

Buy a tee that has a long platform to hit off of.

Discussion: Miken Team Shorts?!

I bought a pair of baggy long softball pants for $1.88 made by Rawlings from Baseball Express. Cut the legs, got them professionally hemmed for $6.00 and they work great.

If you have some old softball pants you might want to try it.

If you can find some made of goat skin, you will be forever satisfied. Might have to look for some made in Mexico, though.

Discussion: SOFTBALL SHOES

A couple of years ago, I got on the Adidas website and ordered me a custom made pair of shoes. You can either get low or mid cut. You can even design the shoes in the color scheme you most desire. Mine have plenty of bounce and are comfortable when worn all day. Thay is water resistant too. No more wet feet and shoes for early morning games

I've also have a pair of New Balance turf shoes in which I put a padded innersole. They are very comfortable and are a little wider around the ball of the feet for comfort.

Just putting this out as another option. They do work well for my feet.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

A pedicure from time to time will really help believe it or not.

Discussion: TX STATE CHAMPIONSHIP-TOC QUALIFIER

60AAA played in Del Valle at Southeast Memorial Park. No concessions and two port-a-potties that needed to be emptied, to say the least.

Fences were 330. Outfield grass was horrible and the ground hard as concrete. Infield dirt went just a few feet past the bases. Many infielders had to play on the grass part that been planted to probably accommodate the field for 60 ft. bases instead of the 70 ft. bases we use.

Additionally, there really wasn't anything close to the park to stay or go eat. If Houston was worse than this park you have my heartfelt sympathy.

Our start times for Saturday were 8:00 AM, 11:00 AM for pool games. We then went to bracket games with our next game being at 5:00 PM.

We started Sunday at 9:00 AM and played our final game at 10:30 AM. Better scheduling in the future would probably help.

Gotta love it!

Discussion: HOW TO PREVENT A HEATSTROKE

I always keep my little blood pressure machine with me. At least check your blood pressure if you become light-headed or see some dark spots in front of you.

I have congestive heart failure and don't take water pills if I know I'm going to be in excessive heat. I even drink a fair share of water.

If you take blood pressure medicine, you might want to check with your doctor about not taking it on those extremely hot days. Stay in the shade as much as possible.

Everybody is different, but don't think it can't happen to you. It can do permanent damage to your kidneys. If you've had one before, you are more likely to have another episode. Just because you feel better the next day doesn't mean to get out in the heat again.

Really, the best thing to do is go to a hospital so they can put fluids in you.

Was down in Austin this past weekend and very thankful for the cloud cover. The sun came out about noon Sunday and as bad as it sounds, I was glad we didn't have to play another game. I drove home (four hours) and the first thing I did was get in the swimming pool for about an hour. Helps the legs and body.

Discussion: throwing a bat

Good rule of thumb: If they throw the bat further than they hit the ball, eject.

Discussion: getting 3 games vs our 5

I understand Keith Parker left the tournament to go watch his son play ball.

I got up at 6 AM Friday morning for the three-hour drive to Georgetown. Arrived about 10:30 for our game that was supposed to start at 11:45. We were pushed back to about 1:30. We then played three games in a row, sat for a game and then played two back to back. We left the park at 10:30. Grabbed a bite and got to the hotel around 11:30. We were told we had an 8:00 AM game. Again we were pushed back to around 9:30. We then played two games back to back.

In essence, we played seven games in less than a 24 span with very little rest.

@The Screamer5 ~ Everyone wants to play ball, but nobody likes to get the runaround. It seems to happen more often than not. Communication is key and people shouldn't have to drive hours to sit in a hotel room with little to no money returned.

P. S. ~ I did overhear a few heated words from managers on the phone with said, Mr. Parker. Just saying.

Discussion: Dear, xavier

I have met and seen some the people mentioned in a previous thread you "helped" get closed.

From my accounts, they are all way above average players/hitters and are great individuals to learn from.

My two cents. You can keep the change.

Discussion: Why I like softball.

Went 21-23 in one session. The only outs made were fielder's choices when one was scorcher off F5's chest and the other when F6 was able to make a play in the hole on a force at 3B both times. Nobody on base and it would have been 23-23.

That was the only time anyone keeps stats, but I doubt every seriously I've ever done better.

Are you certain it is Achilles tendonitis and not plantar faciitis?

Discussion: Sunglasses for Softball

Alan,

I got them to release. Just had to work a little bit with the nose piece to make the lens pop. I didn't want to risk breaking them.

Had a great time in Florida. Just wish I hadn't been hurting so bad with my back and knee. Guess that's what driving 20 hours will do you. Next time I won't stand up for an hour before we start. That plays havoc with me too.

I'm going to do some rehab sessions on my shoulder to strengthen it back up. Too much abuse from working at the post office took its toll. Had it cleaned out 10 years ago. A little cortisone from time to time usually helps.

Hopefully, I will attend some other time and will be more familiar with where I'm going and ways to get there. I will remember to put sunscreen on my face next also.

Your staff was great and the weather was wonderful.

To anybody interested, this was nice little softball vacation getaway.
